I’ve probably moaned about this before, but I strawberry floating hate people that walk in the middle of the pavement which makes it difficult to get overtake them.

I don’t give a gooseberry fool if you walk on the right or the left side of the pavement, just get out of the strawberry floating way!

I've seen a guy shaving before (electric obviously, no room for a sink).

Yes?

I was walking on a public footpath earlier on (not a road). Through a residential area, listening to some music. A strawberry floating cyclist shouts something from behind, i move out of the way and apologise, he proceeds to overtake me, says something rude and shakes his head at me.

YOU WERE ON A FOOTPATH NOT A CYCLE PATH. It must be displacement, a car probably nearly mowed him down earlier so he went to take it out on a harmless pedestrian.

I'll go kick a dog in my anger. (I won't actually kick a dog).

His face, using the rearview mirror.

To see his face, rather than trying to somehow shave using the mirror, which I guess would be possible if he broke it and shaved with the shards.

Just 'bittersweet symphony' it while being reminded of ITV's England football coverage.

I am not doing anything recommended by ITV, especially if it gives Mick Jagger money. :x

This is always a tempting option in my mind! :lol:

I like to view the whole thing as a game and take great pleasure in analysing the flow of foot traffic in front of me and dodging and weaving to make my way forward at the optimum pace.

I'm basically like Neo in the third act of the first Matrix. I don't even see the people anymore, it's just a pattern, a code for me to decipher as I make my rapid and unstoppable progress toward my destination. :datass:

This forum is so bad that the worst thing to be seen as would be the Return of the King.

You know what's worse? People who walk slowly along narrow pavements where parked cars alongside are blocking you from being able to get past.

I get that surprisingly often.

Then picked up some dude who is absolutely choking out the bus with his dire smell (bear in mind I’m fairly used to bodily stank working in a hospital, and even I’m disgusted). Now it’s overly full and taking twice as long to pick up/drop off since there’s not been a bus in half an hour. I’m going to be so late for my shift.

Seen a guy do this on the tube. At rush hour. At least in your car you’re only making a mess of yourself.

I think driving whilst shaving and using the rear mirror has the potential of making a mess of more than just yourself....

The new Coke and Diet Coke ads need to strawberry float right off, they are so cringey, I don't understand how a multi-billion dollar company can produce such shite.

The actors are all banana splits too, hate them.

I saw that commercial a very long time ago for market research purposes. I said I hated it. EVERYONE said they hated it. But they have changed the song. I can't remember what it was before, but I guess they came away thinking 'It's not the advert that's gooseberry fool, it's the music!'

Most of the time I think focus groups don't matter. They pay people 50 quid or whatever so everyone can tell them it's a load of arse (and sometimes it's in storyboard form, or the advert is drawn and partially animated), and they then go away and make it anyway. See also: the Nivea Men dinosaur advert. I saw it as a T-Rex. By the time it reached TV it's just a giant foot. Now it's just a homoerotic advert with Liverpool players lathering themselves up in a shower. Or maybe that's another one...

And the recent wave of overly-sexualised Malteser adverts, with women on all points of the ugly spectrum recounting their sexual escapades to their colleagues or friends, all while they eat Maltesers. What the strawberry float are those adverts supposed to be portraying? You're selling chocolate, you don't need a woman in a wheelchair saying she had a seizure which made her wank someone off. It's so unnecessary. They all seem to be shown on the All4 app as well, which you can't skip. Boils my piss.

The old malteaser adverts with the two women talking about eating them at work in different ways was good, and made you think of chocolate rather than disabled sex.
